Through a detailed clinical history and, in certain circumstances,
targeted laboratory tests, potential nutritional imbalances that may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns are identified and assessed. A personalised nutritional and lifestyle program is then recommended.

Nutritional Therapy is not a replacement for medical advice and any client who presents with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms is always referred to their medical professional. Nutritional Therapists frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

Nutritional therapy often works alongside medical and other healthcare professionals when relevant, in order to offer the safest and most effective service.
